The Peace Song of the Day for 12/29 is The Flower Carol. See a video and details at the read more.
I was inspired to think about the hope for Spring today, because of a video message from Reverend Billy Talen. Reverend Billy noted that since Winter Solstice has passed, all of us (including the occupiers) are looking forward with great hope to the arrival of Spring!
Happy Solstice! Hope you are feeling in tune with nature. Winter Solstice will occur at 5:30 UTC [12:30am EST] on Thursday, December 22nd. (Late Wednesday night!). Reaching the Winter Solstice point means that the daylight hours will grow longer again. (Today was the shortest “day” of the year. Could you feel it?)
The Peace Song for December 21st is “Sailing Down This Golden River” by Pete Seeger. You can find the lyrics in the Rise Up Singing songbook on page 235. On this shortest day of the year, it is nice to think of floating down a golden river on a warm, sunny day.
